Willing Servants, Inc. was born out of the need to preserve the welfare of horses while assisting owners with temporary or permanent placement as an alternative to criminal neglect. The idea for this organization was one woman’s positive response to a tragic case of horse abuse. Theresa Manzella, trainer, breeder and competitor, enlisted community help to put together an auction as the first fundraising event. With the proceeds from the auction and the groundswell of support from community members willing to step up to the plate for the good (and the love) of the horse, Willing Servants became an organization in October 2008. This coalition of community members joins in the effort to stand between hard economic times or lack of knowledge and the severe consequences for horses by providing support in the form of emergency hay assistance an adoption network for horses that can no longer be cared for by their owners, euthanasia service for debilitated or elderly horses where appropriate, and information, support and education for owners who can benefit from it. The organization has a motto that celebrates the sense of community it embodies: Together We Are Able.
